DH runs in to the typical problem of women who are willing to be with him if he's cheating but not if he's in an open relationship.
Are they willing to be with him romantically or just sexually? Perhaps they're also cheating, and they find it less likely that he'll tell their husbands if he's afraid they'll tell his wife, or that he'll fall madly in love with them and want them to leave their husband-security-blankets?

Let me know if anything ever comes to fruition. I'm on a Yahoo group for some SWMO polys, but I haven't posted much or met up with them yet. Somehow I relate more to KC/Lawrence people than Springfield.

Thanks to everyone else for the warm welcome. And I'm going to start a separate thread, as suggested, about the cheating/poly topic if anyone is interested...

Remember that Van Veen's chocolate shop is just down the street to the east. That adds a bit more appeal to the drive to Pella. I also love Pella bologna, so if you're a fan of that, you then have *three* reasons to visit.

I'm salivating now.

I don't know if I've tried Pella bologna, so I'll add that to the list. There was a great little butcher shop (forgot the name) where we got some amazing hot sausage links last time, though. Maybe it's the same. Any family-type restaurant recommendations?

Intveldt's is likely the butcher shop. It's on the east side of the square. It's one of two local places that produce the Pella Bologna.

Jaarsma's is on the south side of the square, Intveldt's on the east. Van Veen's is on the block just east of the square (same street Jaarsma's is on, though I can't recall the street name).

I've not eaten in Pella in several years, so I'm not certain what restaurants are still open.
